Although Bernie Sanders describes himself as a "democraticsocialist" his current political positions would more accurately bedescribed as "social democracy". Socialism is an …economic system based on the social ownership ofthe means of production, meaning the economic surplus generated byproductive property accrues to society as opposed to a class ofprivate owners. More fundamentally, in its comprehensivedefinition, socialism implies advocacy for a post-capitalisteconomic system that is characterized by a different set ofeconomic dynamics than those of capitalism (the accumulation ofcapital and the profit system). This is what classic socialistthinkers like Eugene V. Debs and Karl Marx meant by socialism. Contemporary social democracy, on the other hand, is not defined asan economic system but as a set of policies that aim to enhanceequality of opportunity for all people to succeed within acapitalist market economy. This typically implies stateinterventionism to promote greater equity in the distribution ofincome, universal access to basic social welfare services, andcollective bargaining arrangements that give workers a voice inshaping labor market policy. Social democracy is typically used todescribe the social model of the Nordic countries (Sweden, Norway,Finland, etc.), which Bernie Sanders has cited as his definition of"democratic socialism". Bernie Sanders does not question the legitimacy of the capitalistsystem (the accumulation of capital and the profit system) or thedivision between owners and workers (private ownership and thesystem of wage labor), nor do any of his policies aim to transcendor replace the capitalist system in favor of some form of socialownership of the economy. At most he can be described as a "socialdemocrat" or "progressive populist" who believes that the realissues of modern society can be solved by reforming capitalismrather than by abolishing it.
